Hailed as one of the most incredible emerging designers in recent years by the industry elite with praise from titles such as VOGUE and Harper’s BAZAAR, and with celebrity fans such as Jennifer Hawkins and Jesinta Campbell, Leroy Nguyen has quickly become one of Australia’s brightest fashion stars. Graduating from Fashion Design Studio (TAFE Ultimo) in late 2012, Leroy Nguyen joins fellow FDS alumni Dion Lee and Christopher Esber. Winning the Fashion Design Graduate of the Year Award in 2012, Leroy’s designs were in immediate high demand with industry leaders. In 2013, we saw Leroy Nguyen grace the pages of countless editorials and it was in April of 2013 that Leroy opened The Innovators show at MBFWA, where his second collection went down to critical acclaim – hailed again as one of Australia’s rising stars. MBFWA will see the unveil of Leroy's highly anticipated fourth ready-to-wear collection, Blue Rose. For Spring/Summer 2014/15, Leroy Nguyen presents Blue Rose. Inspired by the cult classic, Pan’s Labyrinth, the collection develops the narrative into a sartorial success. Focusing on the themes of how we live day to day in intense city environments, the range draws on our constant connection and yearning for nature. Referenced in a strong colour palette, with a continued focus on custom prints, Blue Rose delivers an aesthetic synonymous with the Leroy Nguyen design signature of modern, fresh and youthful with mature undertones. A fusing of soft, feminine strength offset with clean, masculine lines, Blue Rose showcases vibrant hues paired with luxury fabrications.
